Chick Geek Finds Out: Is there an MMO life on iPad?


Chick Geek Finds Out: Is there an MMO life on iPad?Yesterday I’ve got an iPad. I am no Mac fan myself and this is the first spawn of GodJobs ever to cross the borders of my home safely – we had no iPhones and iPods here ever before. But a few days ago of my family members was overseas and my husband asked him to bring us an iPad. Since, you know, we in Russia still can’t buy iPads in any store – you’d have to book for it, then wait a few months, then pay at least twice much as it costs in USA or Europe. Heck, I’d probably have to wait a month just to get a travel case for this iPad, which would cost me around $80, can you believe that? Not a good thing to live in Russia sometimes, i tell you! But i’m getting on the wrong topic here, let’s get back to my iPad – messing with it, i suddenly realized there are MMO games too and i never even thought of MMO gaming on a keyboard-less device! So let’s take a look at the first few free MMO games for iPad I’ve found so far.

I haven’t played them extensively, you see – so here goes the description from Apple Store and a few screenshots. I am going to write a reviews for these games, so consider this article a little teaser.

Pocket Legends

Chick Geek Finds Out: Is there an MMO life on iPad?It’s “a ground-breaking and unique Mobile MMORPG, or where you can join thousands of players from around the world. Play with your friends and make new friends online. Cooperate to undertake wild adventures in endless dungeon campaigns”.
Well, what it good about this game, first – it’s full 3D, second – it’s iPad native and third – it has a convenient WoW-like interface tuned for playing with no keyboard or mouse. I couldn’t play it for long, though, because the servers went down for a maintenance yesterday.

CastleCraft

Chick Geek Finds Out: Is there an MMO life on iPad?“In this massively-multiplayer, city-building strategy game, you will follow three different quest lines, form alliances and wage war using careful combinations of military, resource and technology units. Play against friends and others, chat in real time, and watch your gorgeous city expand under intricate day-night cycles with dynamic particle effects and lush graphics.”
This is an iPod application by the looks of it, but can run on iPad too. The idea looks interesting, and the graphics – while using 2D sprites – still looks very nice, but player reviews in the store itself (about the game being extremely bugged & no support available) makes me a bit nervous.

Aurora Feint 3

Chick Geek Finds Out: Is there an MMO life on iPad?“Join the world of Aurora Feint, the award winning series of match-3 puzzle games everyone loves on iPhone finally returns for iPad! Gather your friends and enter the ever expanding massively-multiplayer RPG world of fantasy, mystery, and magic.“
Another native iPad application with a nice graphics, but looks more like puzzle than MMO to me. Still, I’d like to see how they connected MMO and puzzle genres with leaderboards and achievements, and what is coming out of it.

There are other games on iPad, i believe, but these few had caught my eye first, so wait ‘till i play and write a reviews on them first, before i move to other games!
